Quilt Show Viewer's Choice Announced!
The Fenimore Quilt Club and the Cooperstown Art Association proudly present the Cooperstown Quilt Show Viewer's Choice. The CAA estimates that well over 1,000 quilt lovers attended this year’s show and each person was asked to vote for their favorite.
The 22nd Annual Quilt Show was a truly regional exhibit and included participants from far and wide. Out of approximately 100 quilted pieces in the show, which included full size quilts, wall hangings, baby quilts and pillows, the Viewer’s Choice was “Waiting for the Mail” by Mary Wilber Wirchansky of Schenevus, NY. In this unique art quilt the quilter’s grandfather is portrayed waiting for the mail with his dog in front of the house he built in eastern
